Eric Clapton - Over the Rainbow - Live 2001



This song is the last one (20th) from the DVD version of the live album "One More Car, One More Rider". The album contains songs performed during Clapton's 2001 World Tour. The recordings on this album are from two nights at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA, 18 & 19 August 2001.


The beautiful hollow body guitar Eric Clapton is playing is a 1948 Gibson L-5P. In 2011 he put up for auction 70 of his guitars and the proceeds went to the Crossroads Center in Antigua. This rehabilitation center was founded by Eric Clapton in 1998.The auction raised over $2 million and the star of the show was the Gibson that he’s playing in this video. It went for a cool $83,000...

Lyrics


[Chorus:]

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high,

There's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby.

Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue,

And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.


Someday I'll wish upon a star

And wake up where the clouds are far behind me.

Where troubles melt like lemon drops,

Away across the chimney tops, that's where you'll find me.


Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly.

Birds fly over the rainbow, why then oh why can't I?


[Chorus]


Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly.

Birds fly over the rainbow, why then oh why can't I?

Birds fly over the rainbow, why then oh why can't I?


If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow,

Why oh why can't I?

Why can't I?

Why can't I?

Why can't I?
